Artist's sketch, Ostracon

MM 14008 ::
Artist's sketch, Ostracon
Ostracon, showing two human figures, the left one drawn in red ink, the other in red and black. The two men are standing on a line, drawn in red ink, with a table, resting on a pillar, in between them. The man on the left has a shaved head and is wearing a kilt. The man next to him is facing left, dressed in a short loincloth, is wearing a pectoral and bracelets, and is holding a sceptre in his right hand. His crown is of the doubled feathered type. This divine attribute helps to identify the right most man as the god Amun, while the other one is an ordinary man. Possible votive object.
